I Promise! Do you? Join the new IPromise campaign

I found a totally cool way to support MADD Canada AND bring awareness to impaired driving; the IPromise campaign. This is a campaign dedicated to raising money and awareness for MADD Canada along with spreading the word among drivers about the potential consequences of drinking and driving.

How can you participate?

Easy. Visit the website and purchase your I Promise bracelet for $5 ($2 goes directly to MADD Canada). Then wear it.

By wearing the I Promise bracelet, you demonstrate to your Mom and the world around you your commitment to safe and sober driving now and always.

I got hubby and I each a black and white one AND of course, for special occasions, got me a hot pink one. I wonder if I can bedazzle it?!?! Hmmmm!!!

Their promotional video really brought the campaign message home to me. Total wow factor. I can’t wait to get my bracelets and wear them with pride.


Be sure to follow the campaign on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.

I Promise! Do you?

Two years ago, my beautiful mother-in-law’s life was cut tragically short by an impaired driver and my stepson’s life changed forever. In honor of Donna and Jordan Kennie, please don’t drink and drive. Impaired driving is 100% preventable. Think about it.

Support MADD Canada and follow them on Facebook, Twitter (@maddcanada), YouTube, and on the Web.

  10. I love that you promote your cause with the bracelets. They are the new fad these days. You guys are with it. Thanks for the cool links


  1. […] NOTE: I’m aware that many teens choose to drink alcohol on these evenings. If you drink, PLEASE do not drive. You do not want to remember this evening for the wrong reasons. For more information, see Natalie Hartford’s blog post about the I Promise campaign. […]
